Okay, I lie.
This exhibition was for one category of people only… people with GINGER hair. Short, tall, large and small gingers.
I hear you all scream in fear: “No! Why?”
I did the same, but when I heard Nathan the photographer’s story I felt compelled to get involved. Nathan, an adult, was shouted at in the street by someone: “You’re ginger!” I mean there is no worst insult is there?………
Lesbehonest you don’t often hear: “Ha, you’re brunette!”
So he decided to embrace it, and show off the ginger people of Manchester. People of all ages got involved in making a great exhibition.
Myself and my Havas PR colleague colleague Oonagh (pictured) turned up for our shoot. No fancy lights, special effects or props. Just us, in a white t-shirt, in front of camera. My first thought was: ‘My God, I have made it!’
I hadn’t but it’s always nice to dream.
The exhibition itself was enlightening, I didn’t know how big my extended family was until I turned up. Fifty pictures of gingers dotted around the room and it was fantastic to see children looking at their picture and feeling proud of it and the fact they were ginger.
In fact I was proud I was ginger, I always have been and my advice to my fellow gingers is embrace it.
As a ginger, you are bound to get abuse but god damn we have souls! Yes, videos like the one I am referring to do not help our race……
